Capo's Candy X SL Bib Shorts are so bright that, like an over-frosted cookie, they may make your teeth hurt. Since the 12 panels of gently compressive material help to reduce muscle fatigue over long days in the saddle, though, they have the opposite effect on your legs. They're also cut to be raced, so we recommend keeping them safely in the drawer until you need to ride like you're on a sugar high.
The leg bands serve as an example of the Candy Bib Shorts' blend of style and function, combining 7cm of compressive comfort, reflective detailing, and some bright colors that look especially complementary when set against the well-tanned legs of mid-summer. That skin tone in July represents countless base miles spent working our asses off under the sun in the preceding six months, so yeah: we're gonna show it off, and the Candy colors help us do so.
The shorts are finished with lightweight mesh bibs and the D4 Evo chamois from Elastic Interface Technology. The chamois' variable topography of multi-density padding nurses you through hours in the saddle while the soft, anti-bacterial face fabric is as sweet as candy to sensitive bits.
